Eli Manning swaps gridiron for links for charity
New York Giant Eli Manning traded the pigskin for a putter this week at the "Guiding Eyes for the Blind Golf Classic," a charity golf tournament to help raise money for the visually impaired.
The star quarterback got involved in the event through longtime friend and blind golfer Pat Browne, Jr., a 19-time winner of the tournament.
Representatives for Guiding Eyes, an organization that pairs the visually impaired with guide dogs, say that yesterday's event alone likely raised enough money to get them through the year.
Now in it's 33rd year, the Guiding Eyes Classic has raised over $7 million with the help of local golfers who donate money to the group.
